CONCLUSION OF THE
MISSION.
 
 
    The mission conducted by the Rev. J. E.  LINNELL, vicar of Pavenham,
Bedfordshire, having been highly successful, it was  decided to continue it for
two days longer than was at first arranged, and it  was not concludud till
Wednesday afternoon.
 
    Meetings for men only were held on  Saturday in each of the churches, and
were largely attended by devout  congregations. On Sunday the Mission
services in St. Mary's Church caused an  unusually large number of worshippers to
assemble, and the earnest addresses of  Mr. LINNELL were much appreciated.
 
    We are informed that great good has been  wrought by the special efforts
which have been put forth. As a result of the  mission a series of working
man's services have been arranged.
